97 Camry V6 shudders intermittently

HI. My camry Vienta V6 automatic shudders on some days at idling speed and when accelerating. It is an intermittent problem, it happens about half the time when i drive it. i have taken it to the dealer and they said there is nothing wrong and the "car is in good nick". Obviously they could not locate the problem. A friend suggested that it could be the fuel filter in the tank, I don't even know if there is a filter in the tank?. Please help!

You've exactly described the symptoms I had in my 94 V6 Camry. It took a long while to trace the problem to a faulty ECU, the car's computer. If replaced, it should be with one from the same model and year (usually from a wrecker) and if possible with the same accessories like A/C etc.

There will be a fuel filter whether it is in the tank or after the pump will have to be found but it will not be the problem
the problem could be from dirt in the injectors so run a quality injector cleaner for a couple of tank fills
you feel the problem so there is a problem and many mechanics ( dealer or otherwise ) do not use or know how to use a scanner correctly
fault codes become stored after a period of time so an intermittent short time shudder may not be enough to get a code stored for reading

Check the engine mounts and drive shafts for play in them. think on that year it may have a balance weight on a drive shaft check this is not lose, these can cause intermittent vibrations or shudders.

SOURCE: 1993 Toyota Camry V6 Timing Settings

Get a T belt from toyota. It has 3 white lines on it and and arrow mark. 2 lines are solid and one is broken. Put the arrow facing away from the engine. The cam gears have a dot punched into them near a certain tooth. This is where the solid white lines will line up with. The crank gear will have a dot also. It will line up at 90 degrees from the top, towards the front of the car. This is where the broken line will match up with. With the belt installed with all lines on their proper dots and arrow away from the engine, you valve timming is correct.
Of course you need to remove and compress the tensioner also. I assume you know this already since you didn't ask.

Because the fuse is missing and hard to find I would look to see if someone by-passed the fuse and that be the problem. It should be fused.

Take it to a repair shop. Something is wrong with the suspension, wheels, wheel bearings or brakes. Drive slowly and carefully.

Car hesitates / surges at 45 to 55 mph, intermittently.


There was a problem with dirty or clogged fuel injectors in 2006. This was significant enough for Toyota to issue a Factory Service Bulletin (FSB) and later revise it.

My 97 Camry speedometer goes off (to zero) as well as the odometer ONLY when the inside of the vehicle gets hot. In cool mornings it works fine but in hot afternoons,the LED goes off. Replaced the speed...


This may be hard to believe, but it is the circuitry in the instrument cluster. I have (2) 1997 Camry's and one of them had this problem. I swapped instrument clusters with the other camry, then the other camry had the problem.


Buy a used instrument cluster from a junkyard with a 30 day warranty and you should be good to go (though your mileage will be incorrect).

The D stands for drive.. This will make your car go forward :) if your car is revving too high in park you can change the idle speed with a screw on either the fuel injection system or the carburettor depending on what the v6 camry uses
